If you want one that performs decently, get one used. I think that you can get a used Energy 8 inch sub for around that price (US$300 MSRP).

Another suggestion is to save your $$$ for a better sub like a Mission 700AS. It lists for US$500, but streets for US$300-$350. Good clean output down to 25 Hz. It is one of two $500 subs recommended by Tom Nousaine of Sound and Vision.

Here's a link to his review:

BTW, I have got two of these 700AS in my apartment and it really rocks. I don't think that the neighbours are too happy.

Hope this helps.
